I can kind of relate to Vinyl here. There are times when I get so involved in a video game, enjoy it so completely, that I tell my friends they need to play it. Or I'll run across someone else who was playing the same game. I get all excited and start talking to them about every little detail in the game, asking what they thought of this or that. All too often I get blank stares, or "I don't know, I never finished it. I got bored." And my brain just screeches to a halt. "Wha...what? But you! And it! And...! That's it! Give me your gamer card!"
So yeah, I know that feeling Vinyl. Although to be fair, Octavia does have to play with hooves while you can use magic, so it's probably not as fun for her.
